I recently picked up a mini-desktop PC (essentially laptop internals stuffed into a desktop cube - Lenovo m93p) running Windows 10 and am more than a little disappointed with the performance. Most noticeably, there's considerable lag on boot up, starting or closing apps, and copying files or installing software, which all leads me to wonder if the performance is being bottlenecked by the hard drive. During such lags, I'd open task manager and notice that the HD performance chart is at 100% whereas memory and processor are fairly idle. Just one example, copying 20 GB's of photography from one folder to another took about 90 minutes - a new status bar popped up for each file rather than a status bar for the entire lot, which I thought was different.
Any insight as to whether or not it's an issue with the HD, an issue with Windows 10, software or drivers, or maybe the small power supply? If it's at all helpful I'm including a list of internals and some performance metrics below. Re Lenovo, they had me run their pass/fail hardware test and everything passed so they think it might be a Win10 issue.
